FC Copenhagen vs. Randers FC 6/7/20 Danish Superligaen Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction
2020-06-07 11:00:00 EDT
FC Copenhagen is welcoming Randers FC to Parken in round 26 of the Danish Superligaen.
Copenhagen is playing solid soccer and they haven’t lost any of the three games they played since the season restarted. Two of those three games were friendly, while the latest one was in the Superligaen against Lyngby BK. Copenhagen was dominant in that match with 55% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 83% of the correct passes. Copenhagen had 0-1 lead at the half time, but Lyngby tied the game in 71st minute. Copenhagen than shifted gears and scored 3 more goals, and Copenhagen has won the game 1-4. Copenhagen is in 2nd place in the standings with 53 points, 9 points less than Midtjylland at the top. This is the last game of the regular part of the season, and the top six teams are going into the Championship Round, with Copenhagen being one of those teams. Sotiriou has scored 9 goals for Copenhagen this season, N’doye added 8 gaols, and Santos has 7 goals. Fischer added 8 assists. Offensively, Copenhagen is one of the best in the Superligaen, but Midtjylland is much better defensively, and that is the main reason they are at the top. Anything is possible in the Championship round, but I don’t think Copenhagen can catch up to Midtjylland this season.
Randers is a solid Superligaen team, and they are in 7th place in the standings with 35 points, 3 points less than Aalborg on the last spot that leads into the Championship Round, which means that Randers must win here if they want to have a chance to qualify for the Championship Round. Randers hasn’t won any of their last two Superligaen games and has conceded at least one goal in their three last games. In their most recent match in the Superligaen against Hobro at home, Randers was the better team with 56% of ball possession, massive 15 corner kicks, 3 shots on goal, and 76% of accurate passes. Despite being the better team, Randers didn’t use any of their chances and in the end, Randers has lost this game 0-1. Lobzhanidze has score 8 goals for Randers this season, while Egho added 6 goals and 5 assists. Randers was in the Championship Round before the season restarted, but the lack of offense and the focus on the defensive end has cost them that spot, and now it’s too late to turn things around. Theoretically, Randers still has a shot to get to that 6th place, but the chances are slim to none and I think Randers will end up in the relegation round this season.
Randers has had some success against Copenhagen, but not much. When playing at home, Copenhagen has not lost to Randers in their last 10 games, and I see that trend continuing here. Copenhagen is a much better team and they need points to get closer to Midtjylland.
